This exercise is phenomenal for runners. Obviously this exercise is very similar to the Back Row with weights, but you can perform this exercise anywhere you can bring the exercise band. It is critical to your running posture to remain upright, with shoulders back and down. When your shoulders are back, your chest is open, allowing you to breath better.
Preparation: The exercise band should be attached to a pole, door knob, or tree. Start with your knees slightly bent, arms extended in front of you, and shoulders away from your ears.
Execution: To perform this exercise properly, think about bringing your shoulder blades together and expanding your chest. Pull the handles to your sides at approximately the height of your belly button.
Notes: Take your time with this exercise. Release the band slowly to prevent using momentum. Your back should also remain in the neutral position throughout the exercise. Perform 10-15 repetitions.
